You may recognise the young man standing at the far right of this photograph. Here he is playing football for MBP in 1949. Long before he became a rigger, comedian and actor.


1960 Combined Sydney Marist v St Joseph’s Marist Bothers Lismore –
Derek Goodwin wrote: I am writing in regard to a combined Marist Brothers Team that was assembled in 1960 and travelled to Lismore to play St Joseph’s Marist Bothers Lismore. I have found 2 players from St Benedicts who were in the side and I was wondering if your School may have been involved. I have enclosed a photo which shows Lismore standing and the Sydney side kneeling in front. Also does anyone happen to know the Guernseys they are wearing. I know this is gong back in time but I was hoping you may be able to assist. Thank you, Derek.

1970 First XIII Premiers. Thanks to John R Latham posting on the OBU FaceBook page. Can you put some names to the faces? Please use our Contact Form.

Thank you very much to Melissa Mackay, the daughter of the late Michael McCarthy (1970) who made the following comment in respect of the Old Boys blog post

“I was actually searching for something to do with the Commonwealth Bank for work and came across this photo. The man in the back row (far right) is my late father, Michael McCarthy. Dad passed away in March 2011. It was a lovely surprise to come across this photo on the web!”

This comment was really appreciated and made the pleasurable task of maintaining the Old Boys Union website all worthwhile.
